Esquire has an excerpt from Imperial Bedrooms, Bret Easton Ellis's upcoming sequel to his 1985 Los Angeles as Sodom novel Less Than Zero. Narrator Clay now lives in a Doheny highrise and explains how the movie version of LTZ got it wrong: "The real Julian Wells didn't die in a cherry-red convertible, overdosing on a highway in Joshua Tree while a choir soared over the sound track. The real Julian Wells was murdered over twenty years later, his body dumped behind an abandoned apartment building in Los Feliz after he had been tortured to death at another location." [Esquire]
